  • My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

    Hello Everybody,
    I found the dragan effect to be great using in portraits to give it a nice antique and mysterious effect. I've attached my try. Though the pic is small, it gives an idea about the effect. Please give your opinions. Thanks!

      As far as being able to see on this real small image I do like what I see, especially this golden skin tone

          Very nice! It has a 'mythical' quality about it. As if I'm looking at an image of a bust of an ancient Greek hero, like Achilles or Hector, or an Olympian god, or some such.
          But I would presume it's rather limited in application. To males. I can't see it being very flattering to female heads. Or have you tried that already?

              Anyway, I like the Suryapuranik's result more...

                  Hi Pelez, No I've not used any action or automated script, all work is manual.

                    Thanks Dislyda, Using the channel as a new layer above the original (blue channel in this case), some curves adj. to boost the contrast, playing with the color balance. Also, HP filter to exaggerate the fine details of face.

                      Thanks, yes you are right, if we apply this effect to a model with smooth skin it would not look very good, i think it works best with skin having lots of texture, wrinkles, artifacts.

                        Could you post the larger size? I've seen this same before/after from a Dragan video tutorial. I'm confused because the image you posted looks like a screencap from the tutorial. Did you accidentally post the wrong image, or was it your tutorial? If it was your tutorial, why not post the link in this topic?

                        **confused**

                        While I'm here, this retouch was inspired by Dragan. It took lots of frequency separation, dodge and burn (limiting the dodge and burn adjustment layers to various luminance levels so it wouldn't get muddy), and channel mixing.

                          Hi Mike, I found the pic while googling about andrzej dragan, I loved the effect he gave on this pic, so I downloaded the pic though it was smaller. However, I've the PSD file for my pic. Thanks.

                            Ah, found it. Your end result looks similar, but it's definitely not the same work. Sorry about my implications! Here's the tutorial to anyone who's interested.

                              Here is my attempt on dragan effect. A get to this my way about 2 years ago. But the main proces is about 4-5 steps. But compleating details is very time comsuming.
